3.9

A popular museum restaurant that gives a taste of rural Lanzarote.

Although this place is very popular with tourists, including bus groups, I think it does a great job of providing a real flavour of some of the best island cuisine and it is very conveniently located within the fine house museum of the same name. It is fairly formal, with starched white tablecloths, particularly considering that the restaurant is only open for lunch, but the dishes are very reasonably priced and I have always found the service charming.

Food and drink

There are lovely twists on some of the more predictable, Spanish menus, showcasing some of the best and most unusual local dishes, and - as you might expect from this restaurant in the middle of the wine region - some very good island wines. 

Recommended dishes

I would suggest you go for something a little unusual here – some typically rustic dishes that are in keeping with the peasant theme of the museum. Hearty Canarian soup to start with is a winner, particularly if you are very hungry. As a main, goat or rabbit would be my recommendations, followed by the pumpkin compote and lemon sorbet, a surprisingly good combination. 

Ambience

This is a restful spot, with white decor and some hanging plants, although it is a little sterile.

Service

The service is of a very high standard and befitting a much more expensive restaurant.

Location

It's on the lower floor of the Casa Museo del Campesino (House Museum of the Rural Worker), on a main road between two villages.

Price advice

The prices are incredibly reasonable, particularly when you consider their quality. Main courses are between 7 euros and 15 euros.

Tables to book

There really isn't much to choose from between any of the tables here.
